Target Adding Groceries to 90 Stores
Minneapolis-based Target Corp. announced April 24 it’s remodeling and enlarging 90 of its general merchandise stores across the U.S. to carry more food products. The construction is expected to be complete June 24.
Nearly 1,000 Target stores currently offer an expanded food layout, with approximately 10,000 sq. ft. dedicated to “fresh food choices, including a curated assortment of fresh produce, fresh packaged meat and pre-packaged baked goods, in addition to dry and frozen offerings,” said a company statement. By the end of the year, more than 1,100 Target stores will offer the expanded fresh food layout.
Target stores with expanded food sections offer a combination of national food brands and “award-winning Target-owned brands, including Archer Farms premium foods, Market Pantry value staples and meal options and Sutton & Dodge premium quality USDA Choice beef,” according to the company.
